How do Polish people feel about the news that they are going to be restricted to buying a maximum of five bottles or cans of beer per week....

The law seems certain to be passed this week by the government , and if future you are going to have to show id to buy alcohol , and it will be noted how much you buy , and it will be a serious offence to try to buy more than the legal amount....

I know the government is just trying to cut down of heavy drinking , but i feel this is a step too far....

This restriction does not apply to non Poles living in Poland...

there might me restrictions, but I've read somewhere that they will give away a free pack of cigarettes with every sold bottle of hard liquor...

I heard that cars will start stopping at cross walks, service is going to be required to be good or face a fine, and people will smile.

And it will be against the law for Polish shop assistants to ask for change. If they don't have the correct change, they will be fined!

I think this would be a great idea! How can you expect a counter assistant in a major supermarket to have the magical item of a few coins in their till ;) They should just round it up to the next 100pln and spit in the customers face for their ignorance!!!

I was in Australia recently and it was such a refreshing change. I couldn't help myself a few times and offered the correct change, but more often than not, they didn't want it. Some places even had this nifty change machine which meant the shop assistant only had to handle the notes, and the coins were automatically dispensed. And one final thing which Australia did around 10 years ago which makes a lot of sense. They got rid of the one and two cent coins, and now everything is rounded to the nearest 5 cents.
